Weng Choy

Everyone’s a critic, or so they say. But some actually take it up as a profession, and not just in London or New York, but even in this part of the world. Lee Weng Choy is the president of the Singapore Section of the International Association of Art Critics. He’s been writing art criticism for a quarter of a century. He’s also taught as a visiting lecturer at the Chinese University of Hong Kong and the School of the Art Institute Chicago; he has worked as the Artistic Co-Director of The Substation arts centre, and done consultation work for National Gallery Singapore, NTU CCA Singapore, ILHAM Gallery, Kuala Lumpur, and A+ Works of Art, Kuala Lumpur. In this new “advice column” for Plural, Weng Choy answers your questions about art, culture and life, with a lot of sincerity and just the right amount of sarcasm. (Profile pic by Len Finocchio)
